Memorandum by the Department of Health
HARLOW PRIMARY CARE TRUST (ESTABLISHMENT) ORDER 2000
1. The Committee has requested a memorandum on the
following point in relation to the above Order.
Explain why article 1(2) contains
a definition of "establishment date", given that this
expression is not used elsewhere in the Order.
2. By its letter of 1 November 2000, in relation
to a number of other Orders establishing Primary Care Trusts,
the Committee drew to the Department's attention the erroneous
inclusion of a definition of "establishment date". This
Order had already been made by that point.
3. As with the other Orders, the definition of "establishment
date" was included in error. The Department takes the view
that no amendment is required, but repeats its apologies and its
promise to take steps to ensure that the same error does not appear
in future similar Orders.
